The answer to this question depends on a person’s perspective. If you are nearing retirement age or are retired, you would want to see more money given to the Medicare and Social Security programs. If you are much younger, you might not support this idea.

If you believe the government should have a big role in society, you would probably support giving more money to various programs. If you believe the government should have a limited role in our society, you would probably want less money allocated to various programs.

If you believe the government should support private, religious schools, you would want the government to adequately funds those programs. If you believe in public education, you would support funds going to public schools instead of private schools.

If you people the government should help the poor or needy, you would support having more money going to social programs. If you feel the government should have a limited role in these areas, you would want less money going to these social programs.

There is no set answer to this question because it depends on a person’s political views, needs, and thoughts about the role of government in our society.
